Excited about all the opportunities but the culture is very, very reluctant to change.

Pros

Strong brand and marketing images (the blimp!); challenging business opportunities; lots of opportunities to move into different jobs; lost of business and process expertise;

Cons

If Goodyear could speak it would tell you that it just wants to make tires and not be bothered with anything else (ie H.R. updated working environments, work life balance). Some support areas of the business are 20 years behind in implementing current business practices (IT for instance). Lots of silo and is run more as 4 regional companies than as a global enterprise.

    Pros

    The compensation is very competitive.
    The benefits are affordable.
    Paid overtime for area managers.
    Since most companies are oblivious, it looks good to have on your resume.

    Cons

    Forced overtime.
    Little to no positive reinforcement.
    Very unprofessional work environment.
    No work/life balance.
    Horrible shift lineup forcing each shift to work weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat you employees with more respect.
    Hire enough managers to avoid forcing overtime and burning out the ones that you do have.
    Quit cutting salary benefits every time you fail at cutting union benefits.
